* A large amount of key information useful in understanding the story can only be found in the supplemental materials for ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion''.

* The ''Manga/KokoWaGreenwood'' OVA literally directs the viewer to a specific chapter of the manga to explain a reference.
** This is because the second OVA happens after the next 4 (it even refers obliquely to the plot of 5 and 6). AND it's a sequel to a story they didn't animate.

* ''Anime/PokemonTheFirstMovie'' could not be fully understood without the CD drama ''Birth of Mewtwo'' to accompany it. It doesn't help that the partial animated adaptation of that CD Drama, which was basically new scenes added to the beginning of later Japanese releases of the first movie and treated as additional parts of the film, was cut out from the dub (an English adaptation was available, but only on the bilingual Japanese DVD releases). Fortunately, 4Kids later included this for American fans in the ''Anime/PokemonMewtwoReturns'' DVD.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Manga/CityHunter'': The volume edition of the manga includes various informations missing from the manga chapters, ranging from backstage data to how Ryo succeeded in ''spending one hundred million yen in a week'' ([[spoiler:a donation to a clinic specialized in rehabilitating drug addicts, where he had just sent a big group of girls that Union Teope had enslaved with drug addiction]]).

Added DiffLines:

* Like many {{Light Novel}}s [[AnimatedAdaptation adapted into anime]], ''LightNovel/HaiyoreNyarkoSan'' loses some information in the transition, some of it quite relevant. The most pertinent example comes in episode 2, where Mahiro realizes that Nodens' base is BiggerOnTheInside, which just passes with a remark from Nyarko about how well he's handling such an unusual situation; in the light novels, it's revealed that he possesses the ability to perceive and [[RippleEffectProofMemory be unaffected by distortions in space-time]], which becomes a major ChekhovsSkill later on when [[spoiler:an evil former classmate [[RetGone wipes Nyarko and Cuko from existence]] and Mahiro is the only person who remembers they ever existed.]]

* The canon of ''Anime/WeissKreuz'' is distributed across two anime series and an OAV, a good many drama [=CDs=], and several manga and short stories. Fortunately the first anime series is pretty well self-contained, but in the absence of the material from the drama [=CDs=] the drastic changes between it and sequel series ''Weiss Kreuz Gluhen'' make no sense at all. Naturally, [[NoExportForYou only the two anime series have been officially released to western audiences]].

* The ''[[Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross Macross]]'' [[TheVerse universe]] includes significant amounts of supplementary canon from books, comics, and video games in addition to the series and [=OVA=]s that were actually filmed.

* At the end of every ''Manga/MiraiNikki'' volume, there is an {{Omake}} that may explain certain things that were not very obvious, such as how and why the 3rd, 4th and 9th were targeting each other, and how they began to focus on Yukki. It also gives a little background info on some of the other future diary holders.

** There are [[LightNovel/PocketMonstersTheAnimation two novels]] by Takeshi Shudo, a major writer for the anime, that give [[http://cindysuke.tumblr.com/post/34817930237/the-facts-about-pokemon-world-lol insight into]] [[http://bmgf.bulbagarden.net/f313/world-according-takeshi-shudo-15688/ the world.]] It tells us stuff like what happened to Ash's father, Brock's siblings are only his half-siblings, and that ten-year-olds are legal adults (they can get arrested, they have to pay taxes, [[{{Squick}} they can get married...]]). A lot of the info isn't canon nowadays but it does make sense in the Kanto days, like how Officer Jenny was able to jail a bunch of kids so easily.

* The ''VideoGame/SakuraWars'' {{OAV}}s and movie are based on (and mostly continuations of) the games. Somehow America got the former without the latter.

*** Curiously, though the new Chronicles share many major points of info with the PS2 Game, they curiously completely ignore all references to a certain group of Secret Benefactors that don't ever show up within the Anime at all. In combination with Gainax's OFFICIAL stance on the Game being that "All plot details were made specifically" for the Game, it's possible we got Retconning Manuals on our hands here.
